About this property
Once an olive barn, this lovely property has been restored maintaining the original authenticity. Remarkably private but not isolated and located away from the road along its own short driveway with only the tiled roof visible, the house enjoys both complete privacy and lovely views over the valley.
With 3 bedrooms and 3 bathroom this characteristic 200 sq. m stone house is nestled in a romantic garden setting surrounded by an olive grove with lovely views across the valley with the sunflower fields of the gentle hills of Collazzone and Todi.
The enchanting garden has a variety of mature trees and plants including cherry, broom and other fruit trees as well as a fragrant rose garden along the lavender lined path up to the gazebo. A favourite spot, the gazebo is a perfect for a morning cappuccino or a sunset aperitif. In the autumn the main event is the autumn harvest, gathering olives to hand press on the stone mill producing amazing olive oil.
The central location is perfect. Restaurants, hill-towns and shopping are easily accessible from the house which is a short 3 km to the E45 motorway. The north south route which takes you to the hill towns of Umbria and Tuscany; Collazzone, Todi, Deruta, Perugia, Assisi, Siena, Florence, Rome.
The interior of this smart country house is comfortable. All windows and doors have been fitted with fly screens, opening the house to the fresh country air. A deep fireplace makes the living room cosy in the cool seasons, with thick stone walls making the temperature comfortable during the heat of the summer.
